Thanks Rodney for putting up with me. Rodney kept me informed of his timely arrival. Went to work right away, completed the job and tided everything up before he left. Further, he answered a multitude of questions for me. I would not hesitate to use his and your service again. That is in addition to highly recommending Rodney and Your Mechanic to perform automobile services. I find coming to my home to be a great time and money saver. Tom Porter Roseville, CA

On time, respectful, and very knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone and will most likely be using Rodney again in the future.

Rodney had his work cut out for him with replacing both the valve cover and housing unit gaskets on my 335i coupe. I was a bit nervous having a new person touch my car. But he answered all my questions with confidence and showed me the old brittle gaskets afterwards. I felt confident in his abilities by his apparent knowledge of BMW's in general. Now that I've been driving the car for several weeks with no issues, I can confidently say that Rodney did fine work and I will certainly request him for any future work on my baby.

First time trying YourMechanic and I had the best mechanic. Best experience I have ever had working with a mechanic. Rodney was great. I will be using this service again.

Rodney showed up on time was very personable and sweet. Got right to work replacing my Serpentine belt and pulley and was done in no time. Did an overall inspection of my truck pointing out things that should be given attention before they become bigger problems costing more money to fix later if not addressed ASAP. He gave me a quote on those before leaving and thanked me for my business. Very knowledgeable, convenient and affordable prices. Will be using service again in future for sure.

Rodney is the greatest! In my opinion one of the best mechanic's around, this is my 3rd booking of Rodney and he once again did his job like a true professional. If you want the job done right then book Rodney for your next auto repair, you will not be disappointed! A+ service always! Thanks Rodney, see you again soon for my next service appointment.

Rodney arrived on time for the appointment and was able to diagnose the problem with my car almost immediately. He delved deeper into the area the problem was just to make sure, and his initial diagnosis was correct. He was very friendly and capable, and I look forward to booking his services for any car troubles I have in the future.

Rodney was great to work with. There was a slight delay with a part, but he called ahead to advise me of this which was greatly appreciated. I will be setting up another appointment with him shortly and in the future for the allowing my mechanical needs.


on February 22

While replacing the serpentine belt, Rodney found a bad water pump. He advised me to call a supplier to check for part availability instead of driving from store to store. Luckily, part was on hand with a supplier just around the block. Job was completed within the time estimate. Thank you!

He came to do what I thought was a difficult job, a starter on a 97 Corolla.... but he was done in an hour! Absolutely amazing! One of the best mechanics I have ever seen. Highly recommend his skills.

Rodney was on time, friendly and knowledgeable. He uses the latest in technology to properly diagnose an issue. Rodney also inspected more than the original request.


on April 10

Was able to not only diagnose my vehicle, but fix the issue immediately making my car run better than before!


on February 05

As always, Rodney was thorough and explained everything he did and the recommendations he made for future work. I am so thankful Rodney was assigned to my first repair last summer. I find him to be the true professional and trust the work he does.


on April 16

Rodney's a great guy. Came through and knew exactly what the issue was for my car. Also very friendly!


on January 29

Rodney diagnosed the problem quickly, provided a quote immediately, and scheduled the repair this week. I appreciate Rodney's professionalism and expertise. I trust him and that is important to me. Thank you Rodney.


on January 24

Rodney was excellent in reviewing my vehicle and was honest with his work. Advised that my belts were still new and needed some tightening. I would recommend Rodney to view my car again for any car mechanical needs again in the future!


on February 07

Rodney is very courteous and got the job done even though he was given the incorrect part. He maintained a good attititude through it all.

Very happy with the service. Rodney had an opening the same day that I found the website. He worked through a tough part removal issue due to unforeseen damaged parts without complaint even though it caused him extra hours of work. I had a damaged loose crankshaft pulley that messed up the end of the crankshaft spline. He expertly filed down the burrs to facilitate removal and installation of a new pulley. Then the timing belt and serpentine belts were replaced. He was friendly and answered all my questions. I will use his services again and recommend him to my friends. The car runs great now. Thank you Rodney.

Rodney was on time and great! He came prepared and completed the job within the projected timeframe. Awesome experience. I have never used this service before. When I called a major car club that I have been a member of for over 30 years would not come out to change out my battery because they said it would be too difficult of a job, and after calling the local Folsom dealer who was also no help, Rodney came to the rescue. Will use this service again.


on January 15

Rodney was very helpful; looking at the paperwork from my dealer service experience and giving me advice on his overview of my car and what to do next. It was exactly the information I was looking for and I trusted his work and opinion. After I deal with the dealer service I will be happy to schedule future work with Rodney.


on January 10

Rodney did a great job today and was finished in roughly 3.5 hours. He would have finished earlier if I didn't interrupt him with so many questions throughout the morning! Thanks for a job well done!

Rodney came by first appointment at my house to diagnosis coolant leak. Very professional and desrcibed what was wrong with car and asked any questions i had. Problem was cracked radiator he came up with an estimate within mintues and got a appointment booked for me the very next day. Due to the hours i was at work. no problem he came to my work and fixed it there i will be booking my next appointment with rodney when need be.


on January 02

We had another great experience with Rodney. He called ahead of the appointment and asked if he could arrive early. He arrived with the parts and was ready to begin the repair. Several shops told us that the parts for my vehicle were no longer available. Rodney located the parts and ordered them for the repair. Rodney originally said the repair would take several hours, but Rodney was able to complete the repairs in approximately one hour. He showed me the old parts and offered them to me if I wanted. Rodney was very professional and polite. The area was completely cleaned up before he left, and he answered all of our questions. We would recommend Rodney to our friends, and we would ask for him again if another repair was needed.

Great. Didn't just do the work but checked out any other potential problems, and even used a thermal imager to make sure the engine was heating up appropriately.

Rodney was awesome. This was my first experience with "YourMechanic" and I was curious as to how this would work out. He had some issues and took a little longer then estimated. But he persevered and completed the job. This was a timing belt replacement (no easy job), and I didn't have to worry about dropping the car off and renting a car. He came directly to the house and did it all. Amazing service. Have already recommended to co-workers and will definitely use again.


on December 22

Absolutely fantastic service. Rodney is extremely pleasant and professional and gave us a detailed analysis on the car as well as really reasonable quote for repairs. I really appreciated him giving us a heads up on the next potential issue we might have on our old Ford Explorer and what we could do to manage the issue short term. He also saved us money by confirming what we didn't need to do right now on the car.
